Item description for Travelers' Tales Australia: True Stories (Travelers' Tales Guides) by Larry Habegger & Amy Greimann Carlson...

Platypuses, billabongs, ancient song lines, deserted islands, camel treks, surfing, scuba diving, rock climbing --- all come to life when readers travel from outback to rainforest, from the red center to the great barrier reef, as they learn about outrageous adventures, mystical encounters, and endless vistas from some of the world's finest travel writers. Taking a step off the tourist track, Travelers' Tales Australia collects sometimes dramatic, sometimes humorous, and always compelling true-life tales set in a country that is also an island and a continent. Highlights of the book include Jan Morris reflecting on the joys of world-class Sydney, Jill Ker Conway exploring "shearing time," Pico Iyer taking readers "five thousand miles from anywhere," and Ronald Wright leading a heady tour of the outback to Uluru, Ayers Rock. Travelers' Tales Australia gives readers a vibrant introduction to the country and its people with fascinating stories that encompass the whole Oz experience.

Reviews - What do customers think about Travelers' Tales Australia: True Stories (Travelers' Tales Guides)?

Exceeds Expectations  Mar 31, 2005
Not only does this collection of essays inspire one to travel to Australia, it inspires one to come back and write about it. The quality of the pieces is top-knotch and the selections hone in on specific and surprising aspects of Australiana. Stories of travellers who spear-fished with Aboriginals and trekked through the desolate Red Centre ignite a sense of adventure and offer appealing travel alternatives. The material is always vivid, clear, and exciting, but is not just a travel brochure. Authors certainly portray the bad with the good (although good usually prevails) and the mixture of sources ensures a good variety of serious, humorous, and romantic styles.
